O, o, Octopus!

For a long time Mies van Hout has been wanting to make an underwater story. The result is this beautiful picture book that gives you the feeling of being underwater as you read it.

A small octopus lives in a snug apartment until one day an intruder barricades the entrance. How to get rid of this intruder? Octopus asks advice from all his friends, but the more advice he gets the less he is able to work out what to do. As the story develops Octopus learns to have an opinion of his own and to follow his instinct. When Octopus finally decides to follow his gut feeling he discovers that things are not always as they seem.

The underwater creatures radiate the colours of the sea. The artist's expertise and perfection are wonder- fully displayed in the exuberant red lobster, the lively coloured fish and the pink jellyfish contrasting beautifully against the aqua coloured sea.
